1Harper, BryceCollege of Southern NevadaOFL/R6'03"2051992-10-16J1
Comments: The Bryce Harper story is well-documented at this point. Just 17 and in junior college, he's gotten as much hype as any Draft prospect not named Strasburg. For the most part, he's lived up to it in his first college season, showing incredible hitting and power skills. He's moved around on the field and has plus arm strength from anywhere, though most would like to see him catch. The only questions that seem to remain with Harper is if he'll go No. 1 overall and then, if he'll sign.

2Taillon, JamesonThe Woodlands HS (TX)RHPR/R6'06"2251991-11-18HS
Comments: Taillon is the complete package in a high school pitcher, with tremendous size, stuff and a feel for pitching. He has three plus pitches in his fastball, slider and curve. Even his changeup, while not used that much, is solid. He uses his size to his advantage and has tremendous mound presence. As impressive as his stuff is, his makeup might be even better. A commitment to Rice might sound intriguing, but if he goes at the top of the first round, and everything points to that happening, it likely won't be an issue.
Enhanced Scouting Report
3Machado, MannyBrito Miami Private School (FL)SSR/R6'03"1851992-07-06HS
Comments: Machado entered the season as the top high school position player and has done nothing to diminish that evaluation. Big and athletic, he can do just about everything on the baseball field, with the ability to hit for plenty of average and some power as he matures. He has more than enough arm to play shortstop and is fine there for now, though there is some concern he'll outgrow the position. Even if he does, he'd be just fine at third, both in terms of handling the position defensively and providing the kind of offense teams look for at the hot corner. Regardless of his position, Machado is primed to be one of the earliest names taken off the board in June.
Enhanced Scouting Report
4Colon, ChristianCal State - FullertonSSR/R6'00"1901989-05-14JR
Comments: A big prospect since high school, there's a lot to like about Colon's game. He has a solid approach and setup at the plate and he makes the plays in the field. His individual tools don't grade out well, and some think he'll need to move to second as a pro. He was the captain of Team USA last summer and put up big numbers as well. He hadn't done that in the early going of his junior season and this is a performance-based industry, so that could hurt his draft stock a little. Even if he doesn't pick it up, his past performance, makeup and baseball acumen should help ensure he doesn't wait too long to hear his name called.
Enhanced Scouting Report
5Pomeranz, DrewOle MissLHPR/L6'05"2351988-11-22JR
Comments: Pomeranz has established himself as the top lefty arm in a Draft class that hasn't got a deep the southpaw pool. Big, strong and durable, he has the makings of an above-average three-pitch mix. He commands his fastball and breaking ball very well, and, while the changeup is a bit behind, it's improving quickly. There's little not to like about Pomeranz -- most criticisms are on the nit-picky side -- and it seems likely that he'll hear his name called very early on Draft Day.
Enhanced Scouting Report
6Loux, BarretTexas A&MRHPR/R6'05"2251989-04-06JR
Comments: With his performances this spring, Loux is quickly moving up draft charts. The big right-hander has four pitches he uses, though it's his fastball and plus changeup that really stand out. His breaking stuff needs some tightening, but with his command, mound presence and easy delivery, there's reason to believe he can improve that part of his game as well. Before the season began, most Texas college pitching buzz went to Brandon Workman, but Loux has forced his way to the top of that conversation and likely into the first couple of rounds.
Enhanced Scouting Report
7Harvey, MattNorth CarolinaRHPR/R6'04"2251989-03-27JR
Comments: Once a top high school prospect, Harvey has reclaimed his status as a first-round candidate with a resurgent junior season. The delivery problems that had him so off his game as a sophomore have largely been corrected, though there are still some issues there that can effect his command and ability to throw his breaking ball. Still, Harvey was showing an above-average to plus fastball and maintaining his velocity, to go along with glimpses of good breaking stuff and a feel for a change. He's come a long way this season, and he likely won't have to wait too long to be redrafted.
Enhanced Scouting Report
8Deshields Jr., DelinoWoodward Academy (GA)CFR/R5'09"1881992-08-16HS
Comments: DeShields has two things really working in his favor: his plus speed and his bloodlines. His dad of the same name spent many years in the big leagues, and the hope is that the younger DeShields could be a similar type of player. He does have the potential to be a very good hitter and puts his speed to use on the basepaths. He has more than enough range to handle center field and the hands to play second if a team wanted to give that a look. Scouts have had a hard time getting a consistent read on DeShields. He's toolsy and seems like he'll fall right into the old risk vs. reward debate. It seems likely a team will be willing to take the plunge at some point not too deep into the Draft.
Enhanced Scouting Report
9Whitson, KarstenChipley HS (FL)RHPR/R6'03"1951991-08-25HS
Comments: It's looking like a pretty strong year for high school arms, and Whitson should be near the top in any discussion about them. He's already big, strong and durable and he has plenty of projection, meaning he might throw harder than his already mid-90s fastball. Add in a plus breaking ball and good changeup and he has a very intriguring three-pitch mix already. Some tweaks to his delivery could make him even more dangerous. There might be a right-hander or two ahead of Whitson on the high school depth chart, but he should figure into high Draft pick conversations come June.
Enhanced Scouting Report
10Choice, MichaelUniversity of Texas - ArlingtonCFR/R6'00"2151989-11-10JR
Comments: In a year that lacks a ton of big-name college hitters, players from smaller programs like Choice have a chance to shine, and he is taking advantage. Though he'll need work on his swing mechanics, he has big-time raw power to all fields. He runs well and plays a strong outfield to boot. He may not be the elite hitter clubs seek, but since there aren't many of those this year, teams may look hard at Choice in the early going.
Enhanced Scouting Report
11McGuire, DeckGeorgia TechRHPR/R6'06"2201989-06-23JR
Comments: McGuire may not have the highest ceiling of the pitchers in this draft class -- he profiles as a No. 3 type starter -- but he might be the safest college arm to choose from. He has a good three-pitch mix and excellent command that comes in a big, durable body. He's always been successful and has shown the ability to compete and win even without his best stuff. While he's not an ace in the making some teams might look for, he should be the type of advanced arm that can get to the big leagues in a hurry and be a very important innings-eater in the middle of a rotation. That might not be sexy, but it's likely to get McGuire drafted early on Draft Day.
Enhanced Scouting Report
12Grandal, YasmaniMiamiCS/R6'02"2051988-11-08JR
Comments: Grandal has been on radars since high school, when he opted for the University of Miami rather than the Red Sox. He's come through with his best offensive season at the right time, with consistent production at the plate moving him up Draft boards in a hurry. He's a switch-hitter with some pop, but some worry about his ability as an overall hitter. Defensively, he has a good reputation, but he does need work on things like his footwork. With college catchers always in high demand, Grandal's numbers this spring could very well result in him being the first catcher off the board in the first round.
Enhanced Scouting Report
13Sale, ChrisFlorida Gulf Coast UniversityLHPL/L6'06"1721989-03-30JR
Comments: Sometimes good things come out of smaller schools. Sale took a strong Cape Cod League performance and carried it over into his junior season. With the chance to have three outstanding pitches, all of which he can throw for strikes, to go along with outstanding mound presence, Sale has developed into one of the better lefties in the Draft class. Teams will have to look past a less than prototypical arm slot for a starting pitcher, but with the way he's pitched, it seems likely a team will do that at some point in the first round.
Enhanced Scouting Report
14Covey, DylanMaranatha HS (CA)RHPR/R6'02"1951991-08-14HS
Comments: Covey entered the 2010 Draft season as one of the top prep arms in the class and his first showing at the UYA showcase did nothing to hurt his standing. He'd shown more fastball in the past, but no one doubted that would be there once the spring got going. His plus curve was working well, and he even showed the changeup a bit. It was a good start for Covey, who could very well be one of the top high school pitchers taken on Draft Day.
Enhanced Scouting Report
15Skole, JakeBlessed Trinity HS (GA)CFL/R6'01"1992-01-17HS
Comments: No one had more helium as the Draft approached than Skole, even though the Georgia high school product missed most of the season with an ankle injury.  He did come back late for a two-week look and performed well. He has five-tool potential and has drawn some comparisons to Grady Sizemore and Johnny Damon, though he's more of a front-foot slap hitter right now. The two-sport star has a commitment to Georgia Tech to play football and baseball, where he'd get to play with his brother, Matt, for a year, so signability could be an issue. It wasn't however, keeping his name from entering first-round conversations.
16Simpson, HaydenSouthern Arkansas UniversityRHPR/R6'00"1751989-05-20JR
17Sale, JoshBishop Blanchet HS (WA)RFL/R6'00"2151991-07-05HS
Comments: After performing well on the national showcase scene, Sale had positioned himself to be one of the better high school bats in this Draft class. He's done nothing this spring to hurt his stock. He has as much power as anyone in the class, though there is mild concern about his ability to make enough contact to tap into that power. Sale is a tireless worker who has improved his arm to the point where he now looks like he could fit the mold of the prototypical, power-hitting right fielder. His offensive potential looks like it could get him off the board in the opeing round.
Enhanced Scouting Report
18Cowart, KalebCook HS (GA)RHPS/R6'03"1901992-06-02HS
Comments: There are two-way players in every Draft class. Typically, it's fairly obvious which way they'll go as professionals. With Cowart, however, there will be some debate. He prefers to be a hitter right now. More scouts are showing up to see him pitch, which might be an indication that teams are leaning in that direction, though there are sure to be scouts who like him both as power-hitting third baseman and a power-throwing right-hander. How this unfolds and who wins the debate could be one of the more interesting developments of the Draft season.
Enhanced Scouting Report
19Foltynewicz, MikeMinooka Community HS (IL)RHPR/R6'04"1991-10-07HS
Comments: Two years ago, fellow Illinois prep product Jake Odorizzi raced up Draft boards late and ended up going in the supplemental first round. Foltynewicz is more of a known quantity and could do quite well when the Draft comes around. That's because of his plus fastball with plus movement, a good changeup and clean mechanics. The breaking ball needs some work but should be fine with more instruction. While it's typically been the prep arms from the warm-weather areas who go first, Foltynewicz is positioning himself to be one of the first from the Midwest to go off the board.
Enhanced Scouting Report
20Vitek, KolbrinBall State2BR/R6'02"1951989-04-01JR
Comments: Wherever Vitek has gone, he's hit. He plays at a smaller program, but in a year with a lack of premium bats at big programs, his production is getting noticed. His bat speed and mechanics should make him an excellent hitter at the next level. He has power, though there's some debate how much there will be at the next level. He also runs pretty well. The main question with Vitek is where he'll play defensively, as his current home at second doesn't appear to be a great fit. He's athletic enough to play the outfield, and that might be the best bet. Wherever he plays, it's his bat that has people interested, and that's what will get him drafted in the first couple of rounds.
Enhanced Scouting Report
21Wimmers, AlexOhio StateRHPL/R6'02"1951988-11-01JR
Comments: Wimmers is setting himself up to be one of the safer college arm picks in the 2010 Draft. He has three pitches he can throw for strikes and he shows tremendous poise on the mound as Ohio State's Friday starter. While his raw stuff won't jump out at you and he might profile as a middle- to back-of-the-rotation pitcher, he's also the type whose sum is greater than each of his parts. Wimmers should shoot through the Minors and could be big league-ready by 2012, meaning he probably will not last very long on the first day of the Draft.
Enhanced Scouting Report
22Deglan, KellinR.E. Mountain SSCL/R6'02"1951992-05-03HS
Comments: Every year, there tends to be at least a couple of intriguing players to come out of Canada. Deglan's got the chance to be at or near the top. He has a good idea at the plate and behind it, with good overall hitting skills and future power projection. He has a good arm and is surprisingly athletic and agile. He'll need to make sure he doesn't get too thick or soft with his big frame. Left-handed-hitting catchers who actually can stay behind the plate tend to be a hot commodity, so expect Deglin's name to come up in early-round consideration.
Enhanced Scouting Report
23Yelich, ChristianWestlake HS (CA)1BL/R6'04"1851991-12-05HS
Comments: Yelich is the type of high school bat that could rise very quickly on draft boards as the spring unfolds. He has a sweet left-handed stroke and as he fills into his tall, athletic frame, he should hit for more power. He runs well and could even handle an outfield spot, though his below-average arm might limit him somewhat. Kind of an under-the-radar guy when the season began, strong performances and physical maturity will make many teams take a closer look at his bat and his ceiling.
Enhanced Scouting Report
24Brown, GaryCal State - FullertonCFR/R6'01"1901988-09-28JR
Comments: There may not have been another hitter in the 2010 Draft class who got off to a hotter start than Brown. Speed is his best tool, and he can wreak havoc on the basepaths. He has more strength and power than it would seem, and while his approach is unorthodox, he has good overall hitting skills. Relatively new to the outfield, he's come a long way in terms of his defensive skills in center. Pure speed guys who can hit don't grow on trees, and if Brown keeps hitting the way he started out the year, he's going to hear his name called sooner rather than later on Draft Day.
Enhanced Scouting Report
25Cox, ZackArkansas3BL/R6'00"2151989-05-09SO
Comments: A Draft prospect two years ago, Cox is back as a Draft-eligible sophomore. His best tool is his bat, and he should hit for plenty of average with at least decent power. His plus arm plays just fine at third, but his overall defense at the hot corner likely won't work at the next level. Arkansas has been mixing him in at second and that might prove to be a better spot for the left-handed hitter. Regardless of the position, the bat should be enough to get him off the board sooner rather than later.
Enhanced Scouting Report
26Parker, KyleClemsonRFR/R6'00"1989-09-30JR
Comments: Parker has the chance to be a 20-20 athlete this college year: 20 home runs this spring following the 20 touchdown passes he threw for the Clemson football team last fall. He's an elite athlete who has really put things together at the plate this year, hitting for average and power. He has the arm for right field, though he'll have to improve his routes and reads in the outfield. He doesn't have a long track record of success at the plate, so a team taking him will have to believe that this is the real Parker, not the one who hit .255 last season. That team will also have to think it can sign Parker -- whose dad played in the NFL -- away from his remaining years of football eligibility.
Enhanced Scouting Report
27Biddle, JesseGermantown Friends School (PA)LHPL/L6'04"1991-10-22HS
Comments: Projectable, high school left-handers aren't always easy to find, and Biddle, while a bit raw, might be an interesting one for teams to consider. He has the size (6-foot-6) and strength you like to see, and he's throwing his fastball up to 92 mph, with room for growth in that area. He combines that with an outstanding changeup, though his breaking ball is behind the other two offerings. His command and issues with his delivery might keep him from being one of the elite prep arms in the class, but a team that's willing to work with him and be patient could be very handsomely rewarded should they select him during the Draft.
Enhanced Scouting Report
28Lee, ZachMcKinney HS (TX)RHPR/R6'03"1951991-09-13HS
Comments: With above-average to plus stuff across the board -- fastball, slider, changeup -- good command and tremendous athleticsm, Lee should be one of the high school arms being mentioned up close to the top of the Draft, or at least on a short list of top high school arms. If he's not, it's largely because of one thing: signability. As a quarterback recruit, he's committed to play two sports at LSU next year, and many think he's unsignable as a result. That said, there's bound to be a team with deep pockets that will take a shot at luring him away from the gridiron and life as a collegiate athlete.
Enhanced Scouting Report
29Bedrosian, CamEast Coweta HS (GA)RHPR/R6'00"2041991-10-02HS
Comments: Bedrosian has two things working for him in terms of his Draft status: outstanding stuff and Major League bloodlines. His dad, Steve, pitched for 14 years in the big leagues. His son is smaller -- something that could adversely affect him -- but his stuff is plenty big, with a mid-90s fastball and plus slider. That's enough for him to follow in dad's footsteps as a short reliever, but Bedrosian's changeup is on the come, and he has a good feel for pitching. If teams can look past the undersized right-hander bias, the younger Bedrock should hear his name called relatively early in the Draft.
Enhanced Scouting Report
30Clarke, ChevyMarietta HS (GA)CFS/R5'11"1851992-01-09HS
Comments: Depending on when someone saw him, Clarke has been a top-10 pick or a fading prospect. He has all the tools you'd want, highlighted by his outstanding speed. He tries to muscle up a little too much, and, while he has the potential to be a plus center fielder, he'll need to refine his defensive skills. He has the chance to be a very exciting game-changing type of player, and the team that wants to bet on that upside will be the one that takes him fairly early.
Enhanced Scouting Report
31O'Conner, JustinCowan HS (IN)CR/R6'00"1901992-03-31HS
Comments: After hitting the summer showcase circuit, O'Conner is one of the best-known high school players in the Midwest. He has serious tools, most notably an ability hit for average, plenty of power, and a plus throwing arm. He has the athleticism to play shortstop, though his range may dictate a move. Behind the plate, he could be a very intriguing, yet raw, prospect. There are some teams who like his arm strength from the mound, though most see his future as a position player. Don't be surprised if a team takes his bat pretty early, puts him behind the plate and lets him develop at whatever pace he needs.
Enhanced Scouting Report
32Culver, CitoIrondequoit HS (NY)SSS/R6'00"1992-08-26HS
Comments: Culver is a switch-hitter who's better from the left side of the plate, showing more bat speed from that side. He has some gap-to-gap power right now. He looks like he should have above-average speed, but his run times haven't been great and he's better underway. At times, scouts have questions his effort level on the field, though they don't question his natural gifts. He has the tools, especially his arm strength, to perhaps stay at shortstop, though a move to center field could make some sense. He has a Maryland commitment, but there was some buzz that he'd be willing to forego that for the right price.
33Kvasnicka, MichaelMinnesotaCS/R6'02"2001988-12-07JR
Comments: Kvasnicka was once a vaguely interesting college outfielder. A move behind the plate, however, has made him much more intriguing. His defensive ability is still quite raw, but his athleticism and above-average arm strength give him a chance. He hasn't hit with much power this year but has shown a good approach at the plate. A switch-hitting catcher who can hit and catch is a hot commodity, and that's why Kvasnicka's stock was rising as the Draft approached.
Enhanced Scouting Report
34Sanchez, AaronBarstow HS (CA)RHPR/R6'04"1901992-07-01HS
Comments: While not consideed to be at the top of the high school pitching crop, Sanchez is one of those tall, projectable right-handers that do get some attention. He already has plenty of fastball and as he continues to fill out his frame, there's likely to be more there. He has a curve ball that's average now and has shown some feel for a changeup. With command issues the biggest problem, he's not very polished, but there's bound to be a team that sees the size and arm strength and be willing to take a chance.
Enhanced Scouting Report
35Lipka, MatthewMcKinney HS (TX)SSR/R6'01"1901992-04-15HS
Comments: Lipka lLipka has a strong, athletic body with strength and quickness in his swing. While he has the range and agility to play the middle infield, his hands and actions might mean a move to center field would make more sense, where most feel he'd develop just fine. He does have a tendency to pull off pitches and cuts off his swing, but they are correctable flaws which should allow him to be a pretty good hitter. He runs very well -- he was an all-state wide receiver for fellow Draft prospect (and QB) Zach Lee -- but is expected to focus on baseball.ed McKinney to three straight District 4-A titles in his first three seasons. He committed to play at the University of Alabama.
36Brentz, BryceMiddle Tennessee StateLFR/R6'00"1901988-12-30JR
Comments: A year after having one of the best offensive seasons in college baseball, Brentz entered his Draft year as one of the top pure college hitters. He's done nothing to alter that impression. He has a short, compact stroke and plenty of power to all fields. A two-way player in the past, the arm that worked well for him on the mound is more than enough from the outfield. He could be one of the top college bats to come off the board.
Enhanced Scouting Report
37Lindsey, TaylorDesert Mountain HS (AZ)SSL/R6'00"1951991-12-02HS
Comments: As a junior in 2009, Lindsey was named First-Team All-State and First-Team All-Region where he was also the Regional Player of the Year.
38Syndergaard, NoahLegacy HS (TX)RHPL/R6'05"2001992-08-29HS
39Ranaudo, AnthonyLSURHPR/R6'07"2311989-09-09JR
Comments: Entering the spring as perhaps the top college arm in the country, Ranaudo missed a chunk of time with an elbow issue. Brought back slowly, he has struggled to regain the form that made him such an elite prospect in the first place. More than anything, he's struggled to find a feel for the strike zone, and for keeping the ball down in it like he had in the past. How he finishes his season will go a long way toward determing his Draft stock, but the injury, together with being advised by Scott Boras, make him very difficult to place.
Enhanced Scouting Report
40Bolden, RyanMadison Central HS (MS)CFR/L6'02"1951991-09-17HS
41Wojciechowski, AsherThe CitadelRHPR/R6'04"2351988-12-21JR
Comments: Wojciechowski is a big, strong right-hander with plenty of arm strength. He has plenty of fastball and an improved slider to go along with it. He's durable enough to start, but the concern is that his command isn't where it needs to be to fit into a rotation long-term. The good news is he could gain a few ticks on that fastball in a short relief role. A team might give him every opportunity to start, but he could be the type of college arm that shoots through a system and one day sets up or closes at the big league level.
Enhanced Scouting Report
42Vettleson, DrewCentral Kitsap School (WA)RFL/R6'00"1851991-07-19HS
Comments: Vettleson is one of the more interesting prospects in this class because not only is he a two-way player, but he's also a switch-pitcher. He throws 93 from the right side and up to 88 from the left. Some might see him as a pitcher, but most agree his more likely future is as an outfielder. That arm strength will work well as a right fielder, and he has the kind of outstanding batting skills that make you think he's a .300 hitter in the making. How much power he'll have is up for debate, but he should have at least some, with his knack for making consistent hard contact from the left side. Josh Sale is the prep bat most talk about in the Pacific Northwest, but Vettleson shouldn't be too far behind him when the Draft comes along.
Enhanced Scouting Report
43Walker, TaijuanYucaipa HS (CA)RHPR/R6'04"1951992-08-13HS
Comments: Walker has been a little bit of an enigma this spring after a very strong summer and fall in 2009. He'll show glimpses of the electric stuff that created a buzz back then, but he's struggled a bit to find a level of consistency. He can still crank up the heat on his fastball, but the breaking ball that looked so promising has largely deserted him. An inconsistent delivery has affected his command, though he still will show the ability to dominate. Depending on when a team saw him might impact his Draft status, though someone is likely to take a chance on his raw stuff, athletic ability and projectable frame.
Enhanced Scouting Report
44Castellanos, NickArchbishop McCarthy HS (FL)3BR/R6'04"1951992-03-04HS
Comments: With an athletic frame that looks like it has room for some added strength, Castellanos has become one of the more talked about high school bats in the class. Whether he's worthy of that kind of high consideration remains to be seen, but he does swing a pretty good bat and shows decent raw power. The question is if he'll be able to translate that to in-game pop down the line. That becomes more important considering that most feel he'll move to third base at the next level, where run production is often a requirement. The team that feels he will indeed reach that potential is likely to take him off the board early on.
Enhanced Scouting Report
45Jackson, LukeCalvary Christian Academy (FL)RHPR/R6'02"1801991-08-24HS
Comments: Jackson committed to play at the University of Miami.
46Blair, SethArizona StateRHPR/R6'02"1951989-03-03JR
Comments: Blair opened up many eyes with his first start of the year, when he threw harder than he had previously and all of his stuff, while inconsistent, was electric. He dialed it back after that, but still showed glimpses of having three, maybe more, above-average to plus offerings. Command issues have led to high pitch counts, which in turn make some think he's destined for a job as a reliever, though a team may at least give him a chance to show he can't start with that full repertoire. The glimpses he's shown could very well be enough to get him off the board on Day 1 of the Draft.
Enhanced Scouting Report
47Tago, PeterDana Hills HS (CA)RHPR/R6'03"1801992-07-05HS
Comments: Tago may not be the biggest high school arm in this Draft class, but he has one of the more electric fastballs. He can touch the mid-90s with plenty of life with it. His curve shows flashes, but it's behind the fastball. His command needs improvement as well. It's all about arm strength for Tago, and he has plenty of it. The team who feels they can build off that and refine his other pitches will be the one to take him fairly early.
Enhanced Scouting Report
48Ruffin, ChanceTexasRHPR/R6'00"1851988-09-08JR
Comments: He's started and he's relieved for Texas and it seems like the latter is the better role for Ruffin. His stuff won't blow you away outside of a pretty live fastball, but he has the right mentality and makeup to make his stuff play up. He's also got Major League bloodlines as the son of former big leaguer Bruce Ruffin, and that invariably helps, as does pitching in big spots over the course of his college career. He may not close at the next level, but he could be a setup type who moves quickly through a system.
Enhanced Scouting Report
49Olt, MikeConnecticut3BR/R6'02"2151988-08-27JR
Comments: In a relatively thin year for college hitters, Olt stands out as one of the better options ... especially if a team is looking for power potential. Olt has plenty of pop, largely from the pull side. There's been some question about his abilities as an overall hitter, but he has a solid approach and good bat speed. A converted shortstop, he's worked hard with his move to third and should be able to stay there. With injuries that shortened his sophomore season behind him, Olt profiles as a solid power-hitting third baseman at the big league level and everyone knows how hard they are to find.

50Jenkins, TyrellHenderson HS (TX)RHPR/R6'04"1801992-07-20HS
Comments: A three-sport standout with a football commitment to Baylor, Jenkins might be one of the top pure athletes in the Draft class. He's still a little raw on the mound, though he commands the baseball better than you'd think considering how little he's focused on the craft. He has a very high ceiling to go along with an above-average fastball, a breaking ball that's solid, and even a feel for a changeup. The upside plus the athleticsm will likely get him selected by a team that thinks it can sign him away from heading to college.

51Solis, SammyUniversity of San DiegoLHPR/L6'05"2251988-08-10JR
Comments: College lefties will always get plnety of interest when the Draft rolls around, and Solis might be one of the tougher ones to figure out. He redshirted a year ago due to a herniated disk and back issues will always make some teams nervous. But Solis has a good three-pitch mix -- lively fastball, breaking ball and changeup -- and commands his pitches pretty well. He might not have the highest ceiling in the world, but he also shouldn't take too long to get to the big leagues. If he can prove he's healthy, it's hard to imagine he'll last too long on Draft Day.
Enhanced Scouting Report
52Allie, StetsonSt. Edward HS (OH)RHPR/R6'02"1991-03-13HS
Comments: Allie has one of the best pure arms in the Draft, especially among the high school set. He can get his fastball into the upper 90s with good movement. He has good secondary stuff as well but tends not to maintain it deep into starts. As a result, he could eventually wind up in the bullpen. High school relievers don't typically do all that well, but this kind of arm strength doesn't grow on trees. There are bound to be teams who will work with him as a starter and see what happens.
Enhanced Scouting Report
53Cunningham, ToddJacksonville StateCFS/R6'00"2001989-03-20JR
Comments: With a good approach and great balance at the plate, Cunningham stood out early as one of the more advanced college hitters in the Draft class. He should hit for average and with some power down the road. His plus speed will allow him to steal bases and defend well in the outfield. While he'd be OK in center, he could be a plus defender in left, with the only real question being if he'll have enough pop to profile as a corner guy. Even with that one small concern, Cunningham is setting himself up to possibly be one of the earlier college bats taken in June.
Enhanced Scouting Report
54Eibner, BrettArkansasCFR/R6'03"2051988-12-02JR
Comments: Eibner is a two-way player who has some ability as an outfielder, though most agree his future is on the mound. His time spent hitting has no doubt held back his development as a pitcher, but he still shows the potential to have three pitches he can throw for strikes with smooth mechanics. Once he focuses on pitching, there might be more in the tank and his athleticsm certainly helps him on the mound. He's an intriguing college starting pitching prospect with upside -- and if he continues performing like he did at the start of the season, he will rush up Draft boards.
Enhanced Scouting Report
55Washington, LeVonChipola JCCFL/R5'11"1701991-07-26J1
Comments: The first-round pick of the Tampa Bay Rays a year ago, Washington didn't sign and opted to attend Chipola Junior College, instead. He got off to a very slow start, though he was turning it on with the bat as the spring wore on. He still has the hitting ability and speed that scouts liked a year ago, but the question about where he might be able to play defensively still remains. He has the range to play center field, but the arm and instincts might mean a try at second base instead. Add to that a perceived lack of energy from the athletic Washington, and he's been a bit of an enigma this spring. That said, there's bound to be a team that will buy into the tools and hope it can get Washington to apply all of them on a regular basis.

57Workman, BrandonTexasRHPR/R6'05"2251988-08-13JR
Comments: Scouts have known about Workman for quite some time, and he was a third-round pick of the Phillies in 2007. Over the course of his Longhorns career and a couple of Cape Cod League stints, he's done little to hurt his stock. With a solid repertoire, good command and bulldog mentality, he's the kind of top-program college starter who will undoubtedly get many looks in the early going on Draft Day.
Enhanced Scouting Report
58Velasquez, VincentGarey HS (CA)RHPS/R6'03"1851992-06-07HS
Comments: Velasquez raised many eyebrows with his breakout performance at the Urban Youth Academy. In the past, Velasquez had largely been a position player, partially because of an injury and partially because that's how he viewed himself. He may be forced to change his view because there's no doubt scouts see him on the mound after he was throwing a live fastball a good curve and a plus change. Add in good athleticism, excellent mechanics and the kind of projectable body scouts love, if Velasquez continues to throw that well, he'll move up the charts among high school arms in a hurry.
Enhanced Scouting Report
59Gyorko, JeddWest Virginia2BR/R5'10"1951988-09-23JR
Comments: It seems that every Draft class has at least one good, advanced college bat that comes in a less-than-athletic looking body without a true position. This year, Gyorko likely will head that group. He knows how to hit and should have at least average power. He doesn't run well, however, and it's highly unlikely he'll stay at shortstop at the next level. The team who feels he'll be able to watch his body and have just enough range to be an offensive-minded second baseman may be the one to take him.
Enhanced Scouting Report
60Cabrera, YordyLakeland Senior HS (FL)3BR/R6'01"2041990-09-03HS
Comments: Cabrera certainly looks the part of a ballplayer in terms of his build and how he carries himself on the baseball field. He has the raw tools as well -- it's just a question of whether he'll learn to use them consistently. He has plenty of power, but there is some concern about his ability to recognize pitches well enough to tap into that power. His days as a shortstop are likely numbered, with a move to third or an outfield corner in his future. His athleticism and upside will have many teams interested, and the team who believes it can tap into that will be the one to take him.
Enhanced Scouting Report
61Murphy, GriffinRedlands East Valley HS (CA)LHPR/L6'03"2001991-01-16HS
Comments: Murphy began to separate himself among high school lefties with his performance at the Urban Youth Academy Showcase in February. His fastball velocity was up, his curve ball was tighter and he showed some good action with his changeup. His stuff was even more effective with the improved command that was on display. The southpaw is tall, strong and athletic. His stock went way up at the UYA Showcase and will continue to climb if he keeps throwing like he did in Compton.
Enhanced Scouting Report
62LaMarre, RyanMichiganCFR/L6'02"1988-11-21JR
Comments: LaMarre's name was shooting up Draft boards when he showed he was fully recovered from an early thumb injury. He can swing the bat and has made some nice adjustments following a rough summer on the Cape. He runs well, though isn't a burner, and plays good defense. While he might be a tweener -- not enough speed for center, not enough power for a corner -- his overall skill set and baseball know-how had his name being mentioned in first-round conversations.
Enhanced Scouting Report
63Petricka, JacobIndiana StateRHPR/R6'04"1901988-06-05SR
Comments: This tall right-hander was creating a lot of buzz later in the spring when reports of him touching 98 mph spread like wildfire. His secondary stuff isn't as good as the heater, though his curve ball has improved this year and his changeup has a chance to be a decent offering. There's not a ton of life in the fastball, but he throws without much effort. People were pouring in to see him late, and that kind of arm strength tends to do very well in the Draft.
64Nelson, JamesAlabamaRHPR/R6'06"2401989-06-05JR
Comments: There will invariably be a number of college arms taken at or near the top of the Draft. Once you get past that top tier, there are always steals to be found. Nelson could very well fit into that group as Alabama's Saturday starter. He has three pitches, with the fastball and slider being his best two options. If he can develop his changeup, he could be a very good starting option for a team that's seeking some advanced pitching after that first group.
Enhanced Scouting Report
65Golden, ReggieWetumpka HS (AL)CFR/R5'10"2101991-10-10HS
Comments: Every Draft class has players who fit the high-risk, high-reward label. Golden is a raw and toolsy high school outfielder with speed and power. He shows some feel for hitting, but never consistently. More than anything, Golden needs to play and gain experience. More of a student of the game than people might think, once Golden gets to play more and receives full-time instruction, the tools could sharpen. That's what the team that takes him -- and it likely won't take too long for that to happen -- will be banking on.
Enhanced Scouting Report
66Thompson, JacobCal State - Long BeachRHPR/R6'03"2251989-08-08JR
Comments: Thompson's name was moving up Draft boards over the course of the spring as an intriguing college right-hander who appeared to figure some things out. Having left high school a year early, he's still very young, but the maturing process may have started in earnest this season. He shows the ability to throw three pitches for strikes and maintain his stuff and velocity deep into his starts. Even if the changeup doesn't completely come around, he could be a very good short relief option with his fastball-slider combination. Either way, Thompson was turning upside into performance, and that should help him move into the early rounds.
Enhanced Scouting Report
67Littlewood, MarcusPineview HS (UT)SSS/R6'03"1981992-03-18HS
Comments: Littlewood looks the part of a ballplayer with a solid, athletic frame. He has good hands and a plus arm in the infield, but his size and lack of speed will likely necessitate a move from shortstop. If he moves to third, the question will be if the bat will play there. He's a switch-hitter with a nice swing, but right now it doesn't look like he projects to have enough power for a corner. That could mean a future as a utility guy, but a team who believes in the frame and the defensive skills and sees upside with the swing will take a chance.
Enhanced Scouting Report
68Smyly, DrewArkansasLHPL/L6'03"1901989-06-13JR
Comments: Brett Eibner gets most of the pub for arms coming from Arkansas, but Smyly's a viable prospect in his own right. The lefty has a four-pitch mix with a fastball he can run up to 93 mph, an average curve (74-76 mph), a cutter he throws 84-86 mph that grades out as average and a 78-80 mph changeup. He's the type who could fit nicely at the back end of the rotation or as a quality lefty specialist on a big league staff.
69Sweeney, KellenJefferson HS (IA)3BL/R6'00"1801991-09-14HS
Comments: The brother of A's outfielder Ryan, the younger Sweeney has been on radar screens for a while now. He has very good hitting skills from the left side of the plate, though he doesn't have much power. He runs well, enough and his instincts allow that part of his game to play up. If he can stay at shortstop -- and he does show some ability -- he has that much more value, even at second -- keeping him up the middle -- could be a key. He reportedly had a good workout with the Blue Jays recently, and things like that could shoot him up the charts in a hurry.

70Simmons, AndreltonWestern Oklahoma StateSSR/R6'02"1701989-09-04J1
71Goodrum, CartierFayette County HS (GA)SSS/R6'03"1671992-02-28HS
Comments: Goodrum fits the mold of the high-risk, high-reward toolsy high school athlete. He has plenty of speed and some raw power from both sides of the plate, but his swing and approach will need work so he can tap into that power. Currently a shortstop, most foresee a move to the outfield, where he could put his speed and above-average arm to good use in center field. The big question is whether he'll be able to hit enough at the next level. The team that thinks he will is the one that will take a chance on his high ceiling.
Enhanced Scouting Report
72Buckel, CodyRoyal HS (CA)RHPR/R6'00"1701992-06-18HS
Comments: Perhaps a tier below the top prep arms in this Draft class, Buckel does have an interesting mix of stuff, with three pitches he can throw for strikes now, and athleticism. He's not the big, projectable right-hander many teams look for in high school pitchers, but he has a good feel for pitching and is a strong competitor on the mound. There tends to be a bias against smallish right-handers, but the team that looks past that could get a pretty good find here.
Enhanced Scouting Report
73Rasmussen, RobertUCLALHPR/L5'10"1601989-04-02JR
Comments: Rasmussen is a pretty advanced college lefty with an interesting combination of pitchability and stuff. He has four pitches he's around the plate with, though he does need to be a little more efficient with his pitches. He's a bit undersized, which might concern some, but he does a nice job mixing his pitches and keeping hitters guessing. If the spike in velocity he showed early in the spring is still around all season, he could sneak even further up Draft boards.
Enhanced Scouting Report
74Parker, JarrettVirginiaCFL/L6'04"2101989-01-01JR
Comments: Parker had a rough go of it in the Cape Cod League last summer, but there was hope that he'd bounce back and fulfill expectaitons of being one of the more interesting college hitters in this year's class. It hasn't really worked out that way as he's struggled to find offensive consistency, though he was coming on a little bit late. What he does have is plenty of speed, which gives him the ability to steal bases and play a superb center field. Those are marketable skills, and the team that thinks he'll hit will still nab the Virginia outfielder fairly early on.
Enhanced Scouting Report
75Swagerty, JordanArizona StateRHPS/R6'01"1751989-07-14SO
Comments: Swagerty is a draft-eligible sophomore who has been a two-way player as a catcher and a reliever. His future as a pro will be on the mound as he brings three outstanding pitches and good command to the table. While it might be tempting to try someone with that combination of skills as a starter, his aggressive approach on the mound, a delivery that has some effort to it and not the biggest frame in the world, relief work appears to be his calling. He profiles as the type of college reliever who could be quick to the big leagues, and those are typically in high demand when the Draft rolls around.
